Outfit: Red & Pastels

P1150446

This is my favourite and most worn dress at the moment; it’s the High Socie-tea Dress in Macaron which I showed you in my recent haul posted here. I’m so pleased to finally own this dress after admiring it for so many months. I can’t believe it came on sale for only $38 in the Modcloth 70% sale; no wonder it has completely sold out. I know a number of bloggers who own this dress and I adore how it makes me feel even more a part of this wonderful community. I love the pattern and the beautiful rainbow design. It means I could pair it with pretty much any of my cardigans; there can never be too much colour. I’m not too sure why I went for a red cardigan this time given that red isn’t exactly the predominant shade in the dress. I like how the red makes such a statement but I hope it doesn’t dominate or cover up the pattern too much.  In the summer time I’d like to wear it without a cardigan and with just my yellow heels. This dress is by Bea and Dot which is definitely my favourite brand sold on Modcloth; I always keep an eye out for their pieces. It has the sweetest and most unique prints. I also love the quality and this dress is no exception; I’m always very pleased when a dress is fully lined. The only issue I had was the length. This is supposed to be more of a midi length but I’ve said a couple of times now that such design just doesn’t suit me. I got the dress hemmed but it came up still much longer than I expected. It’s definitely the longest dress I own. I was thinking of getting it adjusted again but actually I don’t mind the slightly longer length; making it too short would detract from the shape. I’ve also been using my fan clutch bag from Forever New. I’ve had it for two years but probably haven’t used it since at least last year; I always forget I have it. Don’t you just love rediscovering old favourites?

  1. Your outfits are always winning, winning, winning, Imogen! I absolutely love this, and your hair is perfect as usual. 😀 The print on that dress is gorgeous–no wonder you're so in like with it lately. ❤

  2. Ruby Slippers indeed. Thanks for the cheers and hopes coming my way! I sure appreciate your sweet words. I love that top because it is very thin, so to wear it in the middle of summer is no big deal.

    I think I'm wearing it to chemo tomorrow! Photos to follow. ♥
